Castlebay
Gene Milford

Castlebay
Gene MilfordThis fresh new setting of two traditional Scottish folk songs, Will Ye No Come Back Again and Keel Row, was written in honor of its namesake, the Scottish village Castlebay. Composer Gene Milford has crafted a well-scored offering for contest/festival performance that is reminiscent of English-style band pieces. After the striking opening, the piece moves to the more fiddle-like Keel Row in a lilting 6/8. All of the sections of the ensemble get to shine and the band will sound formidable with this piece.

Ghost Dancing
Brant Karrick

Ghost Dancing
Brant KarrickAn excellent study and introduction to contemporary compositional techniques, Ghost Dancing will stimulate the students in their exploration of modern music. Some of the dissonances are biting, adding to the excitement of the piece. The contrasting lyrical middle section gives a release from the tension before leading back to the aggressive main theme. You might consider this for performance around Halloween!
